Oxford, England may be the home to Foals but with dates already booked through November they will not be seeing their apartments anytime soon. As a followup to 2008's "Antidotes," Foals revamped their sound into more lyrically based tracks for "Total Life Forever." The album moves from danceable techno grooves on "Miami" onto lush soundscapes in "Spanish Sahara." Yannis Philippakis' vocal howls are very distinct yet still similar to Scott Hutchinson from Frightened Rabbit. The energy conveyed on songs like "This Orient" compare to Bloc Party's "So Here We Are." For any fans still distraught over Bloc Party's infinite hiatus, Foals are sure to tied you over.

RIYL: Bloc Party, Local Natives, Frightened Rabbit


Extra: Check out the unoriginal artwork comparison between Foals' - "Total Life Forever" & SafetySuit's - "Life Let Go"
